that can go on as well with the way that this is developing. >> what kind of technology do they have that -- that could help them with this? i mean, when you talk to any investigator, any district attorney, they talk about the effect of television programs where the technology is so much more sophisticated than in real life but what about things like facial recognition? >> well, i think that's key. agencies like immigration and customs enforcement and customs and border protection are huge in a case like this because they might be able to tell you about something, if there was reason for some person to be a foreign visitor or foreign traveler, but facial recognition software, you know, when it's in certain places, airports or some place, can be upheld, but you don't know how somebody might have come or could be a local person so it's only limited. the more value is the digital age. if that praf is photograph is pn everybody's iphone, on the national media and everybody starts calling in. everybody starts calling in. i think it's my uncle freddy. i think it's joe down the street, and

analysts are doing right now backed in their headquarters. they're using very cutting edge technological tools to mine any of the data that they are able to pull from the first suspect who was killed early this morning. so his travel records, phone records, anything that they could look at, social security number to figure out who might be in the ever-expanding circle of people who knew him. these cutting edge tools would also look on the internet. did these individuals and this is a new thing that happened post-9/11 is that when you are confronted with a potential terrorism threat and knew the individual the first thing you did was go to social media, check on facebook, check on, you know, twitter. >> speak of twitter, the boston police department just tweeted an hour ago, an alert to the media not to disclose the tactical information to compromise officer safety with the homes that are being searched. there are a lot of crews up in boston and a lot of people covering this and a lot of risks in there. >> with the fact that the individuals had ieds with them overnight and were throwing t
in learning technology including new computers. as you can see from the 00 photo that i have brought to the floor, these are very impressive spaces and go a long way to paycheck -- to make it a friendly place. one of the goals of the library project is to help each transformed library become a hub for greater school community. because the weinberg foundation wants this to be a successful model, it has partnered with the baltimore education resource consortium to evaluate the impacting within the school community. evaluations are under way at the first three libraries and involve students, teachers, and community members. in addition to supplying books as part of each rein say, the foundation and its partners wanted to do even more to equip these new spaces with the adventure of reading. the library project in the first year launched a huge book drive with more than 40 partners and 100 pickup locations. it is clear that my fellow marylanders were eager to contribute directly to this project donating some 13,000 books valued at over $75,000. i share the story with my colleagues and the
of this implementation was really to create information and technology exchanges in every part of the country. and they are focusing most specifically on critical access, hospitals and on small providers. knowing that the l to have a big i.t. department or have people who could implement this in a sfiio of time were not there. so in every state there are individuals who are sort of, i compared them to the farm extension services, folks were on the ground literally, office to office, hospital to hospital, spend time on how to convert what the best strategies are, how did engaged and involved. and we found at least in a state like kansas, which is not terribly different from the challenges i think that you see in your state, that that strategy has been enormously effective. and small providers are engaged and enrolled with those extensions operations, and find them to be kind of their service team on the ground. >> the only thing i would say, i hope that as we move forward with this, that the focus really will be on issue of interoperability we've asked questions numerous time of the committee

they needed to replace older security equipment and technology, expand restricted we keyway system ems and place security levers on all doors which allowed teachers to lock tours doors from the inside. you may say that's not expensive. why do you need to spend money? it sure adds up when you really want to secure a door and you want to do it right. so if you have many, many doors so we can help them do these things. and if they wanted to, make sure they harden their facility, that's what the money is for. now, there's a township in new jersey, they used funds to secure perimeter and playground areas by installing security gates at elementary and intermediate schools to create a safer learning environment. the new exterior fences define school boundaries making the schools safer for students. entourier gates were replaced, providing the ability to lock off specific areas of the schools during emergencies. again, it's common sense but when these schools were built, madam president, no one thought about this. everything was open. like the capitol, when i came here, i'm dating myself, a lo
shows in terms of sales volume, and we all know how we're using our technology more and more every day for our personal lives and how we defend on it. for example, the national shooting sports foundation surveyed owners of modern sporting rifles in 2010 and found that 10% of them, 10% of all rifles sold had purchased their firearms at gun shows, whereas 25% had purchased them online. 25%. believe me, i understand the political stakes for my colleagues and i sympathize. i have been there. i understand it. and comes from states like west virginia, and no state has a higher regard for the second amendment rights to bear arms than my state. in fact, on the great seal of the state of west virginia, the preamble is montani sember liberai. in latin, that means mountaineers are always free. you know how we feel. one of the review states that became a state during the civil war, broke away from virginia at that time. but west virginians are also guided by a little common sense. i have said this. in west virginia, we know what nonsense is, we know what common sense is, and now we know what gun s
and technology these is expanding those. i tried to pass it by unanimous consent. than schumer came up and said no, but i will pass, how about passing mind by unanimous consent? i was quite. i would've let this go by unanimous consent. they would have been shocked. i think it would've been great fun to see that all of the week as part of immigration reform just by unanimous consent. >> jerry? >> i have a couple of them. i had ask you why you think so highly of our late mayor, grover cleveland? >> f. i was allowed to go back when i wasn't alive, he seemed to be opposed to special interests. he also seemed to veto a bunch of bills, and i think that, you know, it was a time period, and i think some would call him a populist and i think that part of me feels that way. >> alex and then bolton. >> it was reported you were raising money for the national association for gun rights and it was just reported that last week this came up for conversation in the steering committee luncheon. susan collins was pretty upset about that because national association of gun rights is running ads in her state. she i
